Woo Hoo!!!

We'll got home late today, and just got around to feeding everyone. While doing this, I noticed something very exciting... my retics laid their first clutch of eggs! There are seven of them, but not sure if they are any good. Even if they aren't, I am still very excited about this lol. Does anyone know what color their eggs are suppose to be, and do they need any special care (sensitive to light, etc?)? Thanks.

I am not starting a list anytime soon, so please don't ask.

Very cool, where did they lay them? What type of setup? How many do you have together?

Mine should be getting close to old enough, but i only have 2 that are together, and hard to tell if they are a pair. The smaller one is very shy, so no way to see if it is calling. I think the other is a male. Now my other 2 are are seperated. I may just put all 4 together and see what happens.

Again congrats, and keep us updated on how they do.

Thanks. They are in the most basic of set ups, as it is a temp tank for them lol. It is a critter keeper with moss on the bottom, covered with leaf litter, a cork slab on an angle (which provides more hiding areas and climbing room), and a large cutting of pothos. Thats pretty much it. I am probably going to add a canister or two until I finish their tank... but I am not sure I will want to move them if they start to breed regularly lol. There are 3 of them in there, and I thougth 2 were definalty females but wasn't sure about the 3rd. So that one might be the boy. They will breed in pairs and in groups, so if you have a pair you should be fine. I never heard calling at all. It is a very quiet call, and I have some other louder frogs all around the room so they tend to drown out the softer calls. I can hear the soft calls of my other frogs (tincs, vents, etc) when the louder guys aren't calling... but I still didn't hear the retics calling.

Oh, sorry about that Kyle lol. They were laid on a photos leaf, at the top of the tank. It was also a curled leaf, and I think they were laid in the curl towards the vertical part of it... but they slid down and seperated onto other parts of the leaf. It was a good sized smooth leaf, in case you were wondering.
